  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut the sweet potato into 1/2-inch thick slices. Stack the slices and cut in ½-inch wide sticks
  3. Roast the potatoes 12 minutes, remove from the oven and turn over, taking care to keep them in a single layer. Return to the oven and roast until browned and tender, about 12 minutes longer. Remove from the oven and gently push the sweet potato fries to the center of the baking sheet. Top with the beans, salsa, jalapeño slices and cheese.
